Autumn style x Jaeger
Most people feel sad when summer is over especially if you live in the UK (we’ve got about 5 days of summer every year). However I must admit that Autumn is by far my favorite season to be shooting on the streets. Everyone’s wearing their favorite new pieces and playing around with different types of layering. And embracing new collections I was invited to check out the new arrivals from Jaeger as part of their new Effortless AW 16 collection. I love how they made it so easy to dress smart and “chique” for this season.
Shop this outfit: Jaeger Grey Wool Coat, Cowl Neck Tunic, Half-Belt Coat, Cord Tie Tunic, Zip-Top Clutch & Rucksack
It’s just not the right time for heavy coats and winter boots. A simple layered outfit it’s the easiest way to say goodbye to summertime and still look fresh. I’ve had a great time hanging around at Jaeger – Although this was my first time visiting their store in Cambridge I felt like I knew the brand for a long time and definitely could wear almost everything on their men’s collection. #Jaegerstyle
What’s your favorite season and why?
Knowing not very much about bespoke suits it was a learning experience for me watch Billy getting his first ever bespoke suit. Continue reading
When it comes to the King of Accessories only a crown can claim the throne…
Past fashions prove that a hat can be the business-person’s go to or the stamp of a blue collar man!
It’s comical to imagine an era when any ‘man about town’ wore a Top-Hat as he strutted the streets! In modern day you might wear a Fitted or Snap-Back to represent the streets that you walk. Both of these styles have shown their limitations; Top Hats limited by time and Flat-Brimmed Baseball Caps limited by the impressions perceived.
The right head wear can break limitations proving to be versatile across both time and image. A hat doesn’t have to meet trends! A hat only has to suit the individual wearer. When a person finds the right hat, it will be worn with effortless confidence…
At Cambridge Fashioner we say ‘nay’ to those who quote “Hats don’t suit me!”
If you really would love to experience an effortless boost in confidence, check out lairdhatterswhere your hat may just be waiting for you.
The head pieces offered by lairdshatters are born in Britain, with your head in mind! Leathers and fabrics are sourced from UK farms. Stitches are pushed and pulled in a rhythm which can only be the sound of each hats beating heart! This 100% British manufactured process leads to a hat that is designed, created and marketed with one goal in mind – To find men and women with the strength to hold their heads high!
When you try on a hat, you may feel ridiculous adding such an oddity as an extension of yourself. Don’t be concerned! Relax. Enable the hat to find its resting place a-top your head. The hat may just begin to hug your dome as it lies on the locks of your hair, resulting in the perfect fit!
And if it feels right, it is right.
Are you following trends and carving your own style whilst practising the attentive, patient and fun habit of allowing your facial hair to reach its full potential?
Today men are blow drying and taking care of their hair. If your hair is so cared for why would you allow for ‘wispy whiskers’?!
Avoid the scruffy look by treating your beard well. Be sure to shave stray hairs, trim untidy whiskers and never forget to treat your facial hair with the Beard Oil of your choice.
Beard Oil is the key to good feeling and better looking facial hair! At Cambridge Fashioner we support the look that you are trying to achieve. Our personal favourite and best recommended oil is @ Huntsman Beard Co.
Have patience, maintain your whiskers and treat your beard to a daily oiling.
Prolong the life of your shoes! You launder and iron your trousers. You wash and blow dry your hair. Yet you neglect your footwear?!
When taking care of image, shoes are prioritised but too often neglected. Simply wearing your shoes about town and kicking them off when you get home will result in the leathers tiring and ageing quickly.
As shoes are walked in, they crease and absorb moisture from weather and feet. Shoes then have to dry and when simply left to do so they will lose their look and shape. At Cambridge Fashioner we take pride in footwear and respect what we wear. This is why we recommend using shoe trees after every day and not wearing the same pair of shoes two days on the trot. Shoe trees and a day’s rest will prolong the life of your shoes by holding the shoe in the desired shape as the leathers fully dry. This avoids shoes drying creased and dis-formed and enables you to wear each pair, with confidence, time after time.
If you’re in Cambridge and want to pick up a shoe tree that you know you can rely on, stop byCheaney&Sons. Don’t forget to give us a mention whist you’re there!!
Respect yourself and take pride in your footwear.
